The Campbellford/Seymour Heritage Society is housed in the Heritage Centre located at 113 Front St. North. Its mandate is to foster an awareness of local history and pride in the heritage of the community of Campbellford/Seymour within the Municipality of Trent Hills. The Heritage Society collects archival material and historical artifacts relevant to the Campbellford/Seymour area and also has a large collection of genealogical and historical research material.

The Society hosts special events of historical significance and participates in community events. Guest speakers, dealing with topics such as genealogy and archival research, are featured at regular meetings. Monthly meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 7:30 pm, except in July and August.

The Centre is a stone building dating to 1855 and designed for conservation by the Local Architectural and Conservation Advisory Committee. It serves as a repository for both archival material and historical artifacts. There are files and resources for historical and genealogical research. The artifacts are displayed in exhibits with a variety of themes. The CMRC (Campbellford Model Railroad Club) is a sub-committee of the Heritage Society, with both the layout and meeting room located on the upper level of the Heritage Barn.

The Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Centre is open Tuesday to Thursday during July and August from 10 am to 4 pm. The rest of the year, the Centre is open Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
